We are only a day away from the official unveiling of the next generation 2021 Mercedes Benz S-Class but this year you won’t have the option to choose a coupe or a cabriolet variant. Mercedes announced they’ll not offer either of the model options for the 2021 S-Class and you won’t find high performance AMG version of these variants either.
“2021 will be the final year for these two body styles”
It is still unknown why Mercedes has taken such a decision and the automaker doesn’t want to make a comment it either. According to Mercedes, 2021 will be the final year for these two body styles and they have taken such a step only to further streamline the S-Class lineup. At the moment you’ll be able to get the current S-Class model- the S560 with both the cabriolet and coupe body styles being powered by a twin turbocharged 4.8litre V8 producing 463 horsepower while if you want the AMG models you can get either variant with a 603-horsepower twin turbocharged 4.0litre V8. You could even get twin turbo V12 variants few years ago for both the coupe and cabriolet models before Mercedes decided to stop putting V12 engines on their cars.
“it is still unknown whether this is the final end of the 2-door variants of the S-Class lineup”
We’ll get to know more about the Mercedes Benz S-Class on September 2nd when the new generation of the brand’s flagship sedan is finally unveiled. However, deliveries of early preorder after launch are not likely to be done before 2021 and the price is rumoured to be starting from somewhere around $95,000. It is still unknown whether this is the final end of the 2-door variants of the S-Class lineup. Hopefully, sometime in the future, Mercedes plans to start offering coupe and cabriolet models again.
